Poignant story

This time, you deal with the kind of tale made for the families weep whilst enjoying supper in the living room. Well made, pulled with convincing performances, how could we say anything bad about this story? Many people could feel themselves close to this typical family. That's definitely not my cup of tea but I enjoyed this very much. Those poor children, retarded, simple minded, deaf mute or suffering of all kind of problems exist and we must speak of them, over and over. They must not be forgotten, at any cost. It is also shown as a sort of documentary, a sort of expose. That's all I can say about it. I don't know the director, neither the actors.
